A friend of mine posted a link to something called Toucan Box.
It’s an artsy crafty type thing where you get all the things you need (except things like scissors) to complete a craft project, delivered to your house in a box (complete with instructions).
I decided to get one for the girl. She loves a bit of craft but I’m really not crafty so we don’t have a lot of it hanging about the house.
It was pitched perfectly for her, and she spent about 45 minutes of the hour and a quarter that I help out at Beavers quietly getting on with it, not needing help from me AND getting something at the end of it that she was really proud of.
Needless to say, I’ve signed up for a regular box. At approximately £5 a month it seemed rude not to!
